Game 23: Cubs (8-14) at Phillies (10-12)

Hi everybody,

Here is the score of tonight's game:

Chicago Cubs:               4
Philadelphia Phillies:    6

WP:   Chad Qualls (1-0)
SV:    Jonathan Papelbon (8)

Placido Polanco gets two RBIs (4)
Hunter Pence gets an RBI (12)
Carlos Ruiz gets two RBIs (10)
Pete Orr gets an RBI (4)

Nice win to end the short home stand for the Phils.  Vance Worley pitched well although he did not get the win.   The bullpen gave up 3 runs in the 8th inning...which tied the game at 4.  The Phils were able to score 2 runs in the top of the 9th with a double from Placido Polanco and Jonathan Papelbon notched his 8th save of the year to win the game.  The next two series are very important for the Phils against the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals.  Let's hope the Phils can win both series and move up in the standings in the NL East.  Go Phils!!!

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
